Title
A global network for investigating the genomic epidemiology of malaria
Published in
Nature, December 2008
DOI 10.1038/nature07632
Pubmed ID
Abstract

Large-scale studies of genomic variation could assist efforts to eliminate malaria. But there are scientific, ethical and practical challenges to carrying out such studies in developing countries, where the burden of disease is greatest. The Malaria Genomic Epidemiology Network (MalariaGEN) is now working to overcome these obstacles, using a consortial approach that brings together researchers from 21 countries.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 October 2019.
All research outputs
#1,413,165
of 13,647,931 outputs
Outputs from Nature
#33,203
of 70,305 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#1,362,020
of 12,969,930 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature
#32,615
of 69,599 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,647,931 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 70,305 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 77.1. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 52% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 12,969,930 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 69,599 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 53% of its contemporaries.
